CYF is a Canadian not-for-profit organization that supports postsecondary students between the ages of 18 and 25 who believe in the power of French and want to see the day on which the majority of Canadians can communicate in both official languages.
Our mission is to inspire a greater appreciation for French and increase the number of bilingual Canadians throughout English Canada by supporting a network of French clubs in Canadian universities and colleges.
While there are already informal French clubs that exist in universities and colleges across the country, CYF aims to unite them through a formal, national network. We believe postsecondary youth are critical to achieving a bilingual majority in Canada.
Through our work, we want to ensure that postsecondary students are adequately equipped with the tools and resources that they need to graduate from their postsecondary institution with the capacity to work in French.
Students who get involved with CYF fall into three categories:
Individuals who are not postsecondary students between the ages of 18 and 25 but who still want to support the organization can do so by following us on social media, spreading the word about what we do, and attending our events as observers.
